Imagine dedicating one month each year to help others

Each year, AFL associates around the world take part in AFL’s Worldwide Month of Community Service, engaging in projects that support our communities and invest in the future.
All over the world, associates on six continents reach out to help by collecting food, clothing, shoes and other items to donate to the community; by forming an ACT (AFL Community Team) and providing service that also generates supplies or funding to nonprofit organizations; or by investing in the environment and planting trees. In 2018, AFL associates around the world gave back in many different ways.

Associates took part in United Way’s Day of Caring. AFL associates were able to participate in a variety of tasks from painting picnic tables, landscaping playgrounds, cleaning up trails to painting hallways and treatment rooms, and hauling bags of concrete. Associates also took time to volunteer for Hands Across the Table dinner.
